Nissan is one of the foremost automakers in the industry, largely due to the brand’s innovative designs and engineering. Every year Nissan impresses at auto shows across the world, offering sleek styling, improved power, and state-of-the-art technologies. Some of the most creative cars and trucks have been developed in recent years, ranging from the NissanTitan Warrior to the IDS Concept. Other great vehicles include the Vmotion 2.0, IDx, Frontier Diesel Runner, and more. If you’re looking for one of the most intelligent brands on the market, look no further than the Nissan concept car lineup.
The Nissan Titan Warrior is a sleek yet unabashedly in-your-face all-terrain truck designed to drive as tough as it looks. This extra-duty pick-up is crafted for going off road, with burly features like its custom off-road suspension, a Cummins Turbo Diesel V8 engine, racing-style shocks with custom reservoir mounts, and more. Its exterior aesthetic has been named “modern armor” by Nissan’s designers thanks to its fluid and form-fitted body design. Nothing is frivolous about the Nissan Titan Warrior’s look, with fully-functional hood vents and high visibility headlamps. The interior mirrors the no-holds-barred spirit of the exterior with premium features designed to maximize comfort and functionality. From under the hood to behind the wheel, every aspect of the Nissan Titan Warrior concept promises adventurous performance and bold experience.
The Nissan IDS concept takes drivers to the opposite end of the automotive spectrum from the Nissan Titan Warrior. The Nissan IDS is the “future of electric autonomous driving,” and, boy, does it look it. The lithe, futuristic design of the IDS immediately clues onlookers on to the next-level capabilities of the car. Its lightweight carbon fiber body and aerodynamic design allow for maximum driving efficiency. Inside, the Nissan IDS sports a high-capacity 60 kWh battery for exceptional driving range, but the true wonder of the Nissan IDS is its revolutionary interior. Designed for the autonomous future, drivers (or passengers, rather,) can select the “Piloted Drive” option and the steering wheel melds with the all-touch instrument panel, which displays information and entertainment with crystalline clarity. In Piloted Drive, the four seats will also shift slightly together to allow for relaxation and conversation while you travel, as if you never even left your living room. Upon returning to “Manual Drive,” the seats return to the forward-facing position and the steering wheel reappears from the dash. An LED light strip running along the exterior of the IDS is used to communicate with pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles, flashing white to indicate that it has seen them. End to end, there’s nothing about the Nissan IDS that will fail to amaze drivers of today.
The NissanIDx concept is made up of two concept vehicles, the Freeflow and the NISMO®, which were co-created using the input of “digital natives”—people who grew up during the digital age—about what they look for in a compact sedan and combined it with Nissan’s design strategy.
The IDx Freeflow is a sporty coupe that offers simple, sophisticated design and a flax exterior color that reflects popular dressed-down fashion. With a casual, lifestyle-focused vision, the Freeflow features stylish chrome wheels and a blue interior inspired by blue jeans.
The NISMO®, on the other hand, uses much of the same design language as the IDx Freeflow but adds sport-focused features and timeless accents for a car that looks straight out of a racing simulator. Featuring Nissan’s box-shaped racing vehicle design language, the IDx NISMO® combines the historic with the modern for a racing car that stands out from the crowd.
The IDx concepts have been around since 2013, and Nissan has continued to improve their looks, boost their performance, and add the latest technologies over the years to let it maintain its modern classic status. A smash hit at every event they’re shown at, the IDx concepts are the next big thing from Nissan.

Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner
First introduced in 2014, the NissanFrontier Diesel Runner concept is a version of the mid-size Nissan Frontier that features a diesel engine and other exclusive features. The Frontier Diesel Runner concept was announced following the introduction of a diesel option for the full-size Nissan Titan after Nissan partnered with Cummins™ Diesel in 2010 to produce diesel engines for its trucks.
The Frontier Diesel Runner concept features a 2.8-liter Cummins™ diesel engine in a Frontier Desert Runner, producing 200 horsepower and over 350 lb-ft of torque and controlled by an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can even see the engine through the hood thanks to the transparent acrylic hood.
The Frontier Diesel Runner concept is also aggressively designed and painted to stand out, with a black hood and red front end design over a silver base color. Contrasting wheels in red and silver set off the Frontier Diesel Runner concept’s individualistic attitude, and the mesh grille and carbon fiber spoiler add a modern touch. The Diesel Runner concept also includes roof racks for even more convenient transport.
The Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner concept is an exciting possible step for the mid-size Frontier. To find out more about this fun, uniquely designed concept, give us a call today at Lancaster Nissan!

This includes a modern silver color palate, sharp angles, and subtle headlights. Plus, with lightweight materials, the new Vmotion has an efficient design that saves on fuel and improves power.
The interior is spacious and contemporary, with wood inlays, modern fabric, and a pillar-less look that makes the cabin seem roomier. Entertainment and safety technologies are easily accessible, while the outward-opening doors give the Vmotion 2.0 a look that can’t be topped.
Although the Vmotion 2.0 isn’t available yet, you can still see its design language and technologies in some of the latest Nissan models, most notably in the V-shaped grilles on newly-redesigned vehicles.

Features like LED lighting, touchscreen accessibility, improved battery storage set the IDS apart.
